Video – Bernd Leno twice keeps Arsenal in the game against Brighton

I know there has been much discussion on JustArsenal about whether we should have kept Emi Martinez in the summer, but some of Bernd Leno’s performances lately have been better than excellent.

There is never enough publicity given to great saves, so I thought it was worth reminding you what the German did against Brighton last night to keep us in the game…

Here is the first one…

And here is the second…

    Great shout out Pat and it’s worth remembering he was doing this weekly for 2 years until his injury having to face upto 20 odd shots a game under Emery .
    It’s a shame that some fans got carried away with Martinez’s form for the 6months he played now Leno is under scrutiny for every little mistake that he makes .
    I even read some fans making excuses on here when Martinez let in 4 goals ,I mean he doesn’t even play for us anymore 😂

    Nice one Dan. He’s our GK and I rate him higher than De Gea, Kepa and Mandy

    It was a really convincing performance by Leno. His save in the first half defo kept us in the game. He was along with Saka the top performers yesterday. Auba on the other hand was poor.

    It’s not worth persisting with the Martinez comparisons. Leno is a top keeper who appears to me to be getting better. From what I’ve seen, he’s dealing with crosses much better recently and looks more comfortable with the ball at his feet (couple of inconsequential bad kicks aside -happens to everyone).
    Everyone knows he’s a great shot-stopper, and of course he’s saved us plenty of points over the past couple of years, but if I’m right that he is improving, it shows he’s got a great mentality and is definitely worth the manager’s esteem.
